VCOP quick fire activities

VCOP quick fire activities

A selection of quick fire activities (suitable for use in plenary or as 5 minute time fillers) to encourage children to think about Vocabulary, Connectives, Openings and Punctuation. They are designed to be cut into strips and then laminated. I find it useful to have a separate bag for each of the 4 areas, to make it easier to (literally and metaphorically) dip into them. I made them to use with a Year 1 class, but they may be useable or adaptable for other ages

VCOP openers on keys

VCOP openers on keys

This is a resource I made for my VCOP display. I have used openers from the Ros Wilson Pyramid and added some of my own. I have included the word files so they're editable and the PDF files for printing in different sizes. Hope they're of some use to someone.

VCOP display and cards for tables

VCOP display and cards for tables

The first file is to create a display with VCOP in large initials then the words Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation to put up next to them as a large visual reminder. The four colours were picked because highlighters are available in similar colours - you can then highlight examples of each in the different colours. You can also use these colours to highlight words in a text document. The second file is designed to be kept on tables for reference by the children. I have created it so that each sheet can be cut in half to form A5 cards then laminated. The titles follow the colour scheme used for the display and show ‘Good’ Level 1/2 examples (with the title in a pale version of the colour) and then ‘Even Better’ Level 3/4 examples (with the title in a darker version of the colour). Other topics covered: classroom display.
